Both dolls stand at 6.25”, with all-bisque construction, w ith jointed shoulders and thighs. Both have their original glass sleep eyes (one with blue, and one with a light amber), with pained upper and lower lashes, tapered brows, and closed mouth. The amber-eyed doll has her original brown mohair wig, still glued to her head, with painted and molded white socks and yellow mary-jane style shoes. The blue-eyed doll has a removable brown wig, with the same features as her sibling, including the socks and shoes molding.
The amber-eyed doll wears a cream sleeveless dress and matching pantaloons, with a bonnet atop her head. The blue-eyed doll wears a red cotton dress, and white cotton pantaloons with blue spots.
MARKS: Both dolls bear the following marks, incised on the upper back: P.607 / I Germany
CONDITION: Both dolls are in great overall condition: both are free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with high-quality modeling and painting of features. Both eyes sleep well. As is often the case with small, all-bisque dolls, both do have some minor and typical rubs to the cheeks, and some tiny pepper spots here and there; this is often due to the less-precise manufacturing methods for these smaller dolls. The costumes are good for both, with no major issues. Please inspect the photos carefully, and feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions on these dolls!
*Please note that the price shown for these dolls was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. The dolls’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
